I have been working on @wabanzi
's kusudama flower topiaries
for months. I've got one completed and am putting the finishing touches on another. I love the look and am super-excited except for one glaring issue: the damn stick.
I have been using a wooden dowel to keep the topiary up. I originally secured it in a cheap bucket with plaster of paris, planning to later place it in a pretty planter with some fake moss something like that.
As I've been working on it, the plaster of paris has begun to crumble and the poles keep popping out whenever someone moves them. More importantly, the poles aren't straight. This is driving me crazy.
How would you secure a stick in a long stick in a planter or bucket? I'd use cement or try plaster of paris again but they dry slowly and I could never get them to stay straight and even.
